A 13.8-acre estate in Meriden, Coventry, in England has hit the market for £3 million (US$3.8 million).
The current owners, a local family, have owned the property for 15 years, and are looking to downsize from the vast premises, according to Jason Way of Knight Frank, the listing agent for the property.
“Meriden is considered to be the very center of England,” Mr. Way said. “It’s a very handsome house built in 1792, listed as being of special historical and architectural significance.”
The property is listed Grade II, a prominent designation of properties that “are of special interest, warranting every effort to preserve them,” according to HistoricEngland.org.

Perched on top of a hill, the spacious home is surrounded by lush garden views. Within the garden is a 1-acre lake and a network of oak trees that “are probably six or seven hundred years old,” said Way. The home publicly hit the market on July 17, according to Way.
Meriden House is secluded through a double metal, electric, gated entry that winds toward a gravelled drive, according to a property brochure. Double doors lead into a marbled entrance hall at the home’s entrance. Next to the hall is a dining room that has traditional oak panelled walls and a fireplace in the center.
The property also has a cinema room, a billiard room, a game room, and a recently refurbished gym and spa area with a hot tub, yoga room, sauna/steam room, shower room and cloakroom. The kitchen, centrally located in the home, is equipped with a preparation island, limestone floors and a separate breakfast room and snug.
In the far side of the gardens sits a summer house alongside a wooded dell with a flagstone path. On the home’s west side are two grass paddocks with an agricultural barn. The “Heart of England” public footpath crosses the land below the garden, giving access to countryside walks.
Meriden is located in the West Midlands, close to the cities of Coventry and Birmingham.
